    Cute idea, I have never seen this type of design on an STD.  Great job!

    I think they are cute and different but they look a little plain.  Maybe do a draft and post it and then let us tell you if you should improve or leave it.

    It looks great!  But I think you have the heart in the wrong place… It looks like it’s over Midland instead of Saginaw.  (Can you tell I used to live in the area????)

    I *love* these!  (can you tell I’m originally from Michigan too? lol)

    Your font is totally fun, and I love having the UP on there too -really makes an impact, and guests who aren’t from Michigan may be less inclined to see a mitten hehe. 

    What color is the background going to be?

    do you have some sort of tool (cricut or a punch?) to cut out the state? i don’t know how many you have to make but it could end up taking forever, especially considering the state shape. i’d do the whole state, fwiw.

    i think PP were saying it’s plain because of the white background and the font selections / formatting choice.

    cute idea!! I would make Michigan dark purple outlined and maybe a little smaller.  It seems like the whole STD is about the state and not y’alls wedding date.

    @misskarianne: Ok cool beans!  For a white background, I’d go with a purple Michigan – a pink heart would be the cutest, and you’d avoid any unintentional purple heart puns.

    @misskarianne: that’s good! because that would take a crazy long time otherwise! okay, i’m embarrassed to even post this it’s so bad (i’m at work and dont have all my awesome fonts!), but i think if you set it up kinda similar to this it would look nice and make the focus on you guys:

    THOUGHT!

    Why dont you just cut each paper out to the Shape of Michigan with all the ifno inside of the shape?! I envision that to be super cute; but might be a lot of work cutting, unless you or a friend have a Cricut of course!

    or I say do the outline in a grey or charcoal color (not black too harsh) and then either punch out a heart or have a pink/purple heart.

    Great Job!
